BoxingScene caught up with welterweight contender Jesus Soto Karass after his upset majority decision victory over Selcuk Aydin on Saturday night at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Soto Karass, who was a 5-1 underdog in the fight, controlled the fight applying controlled pressure. He said that fighting intelligently is what they worked on in training camp.

"We were winning the fight round by round like we worked on in training. Throughout the fight I thought I was winning. At the most I felt I lost three rounds. We tried to fight smart in the ring and I think that was the key to the fight," Soto Karass explained.

Most ringside observers had Soto Karass winning 7-8 of the 10 rounds. However the first score announced was 95-95. Soto Karass admitted that score had him nervous.

"I was confident that I won the fight because we knew we won. When I heard the
first score was a tie I smiled and I was like 'are these jackasses going to take this fight from me?'" joked Soto Karass. "I didn't know if they were going to make it a tie or give it to him but thankfully they did the right thing and gave me the win that I deserved," he continued.

Soto Karass finished our conversation by speaking about potential future opponents. He said that he is ready to face anyone in the welterweight division.

"I will fight anybody out there. It doesn't matter who. There are a lot of names out there like Paulie Malignaggi and Robert Guerrero. There is Floyd Mayweather who of course brings a lot of money. I will fight anyone," Soto Karass stated.

Karass vs Malignaggi would be an interesting fight to see. GBP has all the good fighters at 147 there is lots of fights to be made in that weight class.

Karass is a hard night for Paulie. he'd give Guerrero all he could handle, and possibly a little more, too.

Karass/Malignaggi is a fight I would not mind seeing. Make it happen.

Paulie has to get some respect back. Every one is eyeing him and his title because they see him as an easy target, a weak champion. When you have shot fighters coming out of retirement willing to fight you, you have to do something about that. He has to win big in his next fight.
